Welcome to Year 3 – Y3CH
Our staff for 2018/19:
Mrs Harrison with Teaching Assistant Miss MacDonald
Welcome to year 3, where our children have settled into the new year brilliantly. In year 3, we are focusing on the core value of aiming high and setting high expectations in class and out on the year! We have started our first topic question linking to our creative curriculum ‘What do we need to survive and thrive?’ We have looked closely about what this means for our community and how it links to historical events in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and the Iron Age! We are excited to learn about this question throughout the first half term and link all our learning to our ‘Wow’ outcome at the end which will be creating and making a recipe for a nutritious soup!
This half term, we are focusing on two topics within literacy. Aspirations and the Stone Age. All the children’s literacy learning will happen through a creative stimulus that will ignite their imagination. We will also focus on key SPAG skills through starter activities and through whole class modelling.
For this half term, we are focusing on place value and getting the children prepared for more complex maths. First we will learn the skill, then vary the learning so that the children can tackle this in lots of different ways and then through reasoning and problem solving. Children’s conficence has already grown in this short space of time so we are looking forward to seeing their results as we progress.
Swimming will commence after the holidays
How can parent help?
Remember to keep reading at home and filling in your planner every day with the pages that you have read up to! We will also be sending out homework menus for children to complete. Please read when the homework is due in and encourage your child to complete this promptly!
We look forward to seeing where the children’s creativity and imagination take them!
